The platform offers the industry a standard for measuring, documenting and improving carbon footprint
February 7, 2022, Montreal, Canada
CarbonBook℠ announced today that it has launched its flagship product — an easy-to-use software tool of the same name, that empowers indoor farms to become more sustainable and productive. This new product helps indoor growers, retailers, and input providers measure, document and improve their carbon footprints.
“Consumers, retailers, and investors are hungry for reliable sources of produce with reduced carbon footprints. Carbon score labeling is just around the corner,” remarked Daphne Preuss, CEO. “With CarbonBook, growers will be able to document their carbon footprint over time, using an ISO-compliant model. This opens the door to more sustainable indoor farming and will provide the validation needed for additional revenue streams through the sale of carbon credits.”
Developed specifically for Controlled Environmental Agriculture (CEA), the software takes a comprehensive and nuanced approach, including:
- Evaluating and monitoring CO2 emissions.
- Measuring carbon contribution from energy inputs, consumables, packaging, storage, and transportation.
- Capturing benefits from biomass production, recycling and power generation.
- Providing reporting and data analysis Designed to meet the highest industry requirements for carbon footprint products, the software uses the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and indoor agriculture- focused life cycle analysis to provide the most accurate carbon calculations available for indoor farming. The software will be showcased to the industry for the first time at Indoor Ag Con in Las Vegas from February 28 to March 1.
CarbonBook℠ is a global leader in calculating greenhouse gas contributions from indoor farming. We assess and standardize carbon footprint calculations for produce grown indoors, from high-tech vertical farms to ordinary greenhouses. Our products enable growers, distributors, retailers, and input providers to track and improve carbon footprints, from seed to harvest to delivery.
